What is the Old Mutual SuperFund Deferred Retirement?

Old Mutual SuperFund allows retired members to continue their membership even though they have retired from their employer.

Old Mutual SuperFund Deferred Retirement provides you with the option to keep your retirement savings invested, protected and growing while you decide on a more appropriate time to access your retirement benefit.

From there, the process is easy, automatic and seamless.
